Silent Auction for Operation Smile

I am so excited about the Silent Auction and Crafting day for Operation Smile today. I can hardly stand it! It's going to be so much fun! Even if you cannot attend, you can still participate in the auction! I will post here pictures of many of the projects available at the auction. Email me the project you are interested in and your bid (your max bid and I will start at the lowest and work up to that bid...if that makes sense) and I will place your bids for you. Thanks for being generous and helping Operation Smile and children in need!

Washer Pendants

Ever thought of making jewelry out of scrapbooking supplies? Well you can! And it’s both fun and easy! I made these Washer Pendant Necklaces for my upcoming Operation Smile Auction! Shhhh....but it's a secret! LOL! Here is what you need to make them:

· Washers (this is the only non-scrapbooking supply you need. I use Fender washers from the hardware store that are 3/8” by 1 ½”)

· Paper – great way to use up scraps!

· Accents – I used bitty paper flowers, bitty sparkles and our Rub-ons.

· Liquid glass – LOVE this!

· Hemp – Our thin hemp is great for completing the necklace with.

Watch later this week for a step-by-step tutorial!! You will love it!
